Starring Chris Rock and Jason Schwartzman, comedy-crime anthology series Fargo returns to SBS and SBS On Demand next month

The critically acclaimed fourth season leads a highly anticipated month of drama programming this October

From acclaimed creator and executive producer Noah Hawley and starring Chris Rock, the eleven-episode fourth instalment of the Emmy® and Golden Globe® award-winning series Fargo will premiere with a double episode this Thursday.

Boasting a stellar ensemble cast, Chris Rock is joined by Jason Schwartzman, Salvatore Esposito, Ben Whishaw, Jessie Buckley, Jack Huston, E’myri Crutchfield, Andrew Bird, Anji White, Gaetano Bruno, Sean Fortunato, Jeremie Harris, Corey Hendrix, Matthew Elam, James Vincent Meredith, Francesco Acquaroli, Karen Aldridge, Kelsey Asbille, Rodney Jones, Jameson Braccioforte, Tommaso Ragno, Glynn Turman and Timothy Olyphant.

In 1950 Kansas City, two criminal syndicates fighting for a piece of the American dream have struck an uneasy peace. Together, they control an alternate economy of exploitation and drugs. To cement their truce, Loy Cannon (Chris Rock), the head of the African American crime family, trades his youngest son Satchel (Rodney Jones), to his enemy Donatello Fadda (Tommaso Ragno), the head of the Italian mafia. In return, Donatello surrenders his youngest son Zero (Jameson Braccioforte) to Loy.

When Donatello dies in the hospital following a routine surgery, the tenuous truce is threatened. Josto Fadda (Jason Schwartzman) takes up his father’s mantle, but his efforts to stabilise the organisation are undermined by his brother, Gaetano (Salvatore Esposito), who has joined the family in Kansas City after building a reputation for ruthlessness in Italy. Amongst the turmoil, Patrick “Rabbi” Milligan (Ben Whishaw), a man who once betrayed his own family to serve the Italians, watches carefully to ensure his survival.

The fourth season of Fargo was scheduled to premiere in April, but production in Chicago halted due to the pandemic. Filming resumed in late August, making Fargo the first major production to restart filming in Chicago since the pandemic began.

Fargo Season Four premieres with a double episode on Thursday, 8 October at 8.35pm on SBS

Each episode will be made available on SBS On Demand the same day as broadcast.

As viewers gear up for the latest season, SBS has also added seasons one-three of standalone series Fargo to streaming its streaming platform SBS On Demand.
